Overview

Former professional bicyclist Johan Bruyneel takes you on an exhilarating behind-the-scenes tour of the road to victory.

In 1998, Johan Bruyneel looked Lance Armstrong in the eye and said, "Look, if we’re going to ride the Tour, we might as well win." In that powerful phrase a dynasty was born. We Might as Well Win  reveals the planning, training, strategy, and tactics that led to a record seven Tour de France victories for Bruyneel with Armstrong, an eighth with Alberto Contador, his eleventh grand tour victory at the Giro d’Italia, and the exclusion of his team Astana from the 2008 Tour de France. Through thrilling stories of his own racing wins and those of the cyclists he has guided during his extraordinary career, Bruyneel shows what it takes to succeed, both on and off the bike.
